18 Week Support is an organisation that provides insourcing to UK NHS Trusts, enabling them to manage waiting lists in a sustainable, cost-effective and efficient manner.
Founded in June 2014, 18 Week Support provides services nationally to both NHS Trusts and Private Providers, supplying outpatient and surgical services to clear backlogs across multiple clinical specialities.
We work with you in your hospitals
The aim of 18 Week Support is to act as a weekend mirror support to the Monday – Friday NHS service. The team uses the same procedures, adheres to the same guidelines and practices, and ensures that the work of the weekend team does not generate conflicts in terms of support services or consumables.
“We are not here to reinvent the wheel. We make sure that letters are transcribed, equipment is replenished and we take care not to overburden the local pathology lab. Their lead is paramount and our support services are there to remove pressure, not to add to it.”
Alexander Chilvers, Operations Director, 18 Week Support
